        • Very near to Santa Maria Novella station, location is great and hotel are spotlessly clean, clean towels every day. Staff is friendly, helpful and responsive, the bathroom is also quite big.

          One of the two windows in our room was broken and diffcult to open and close.

        • N train station / friendly staff, excellent location and i just returned from two weeks in Italy. Great price and large room. Breakfast was more than adequate.

          The shower doors were not good at keeping the water from seeping out into the bathroom floor.

          Street outside can be noisy and shower is too small. Breakfast could be better.

The service at the front desk was friendly, efficient and very helpful, our room was very big and stylish, there was everything we needed. That and the restaurant next to were the best we dined at in Florence.

          Less than two minutes from the train station, the street was incredibly noisy and the bathroom was OK the shower space was narrow. Pillows were hard and toilet was very small.
